Health & Community Care

Health and Community Care

Accessing appropriate health care if you are an asylum seeker, migrant, refugee or ethnic minority communities can be extremely difficult, in addition to which certain health prevention messages do not always reach ethnic minority communities. Our health access and development project works to provide a broad range of advice including applications for PIP (formerly known as DLA) and ESA.

Increasingly a key aspect of our work also involves supporting individuals in discussions with the overseas departments of hospitals as well as supporting them to make complaints where they feel they have been treated inappropriately or discriminated against.

The project works in close partnership with NELFT to support those with mental health difficulties.

Making an appointment or referral for advice services

Making an appointment or referral could not be easier, but please remember we may not be able to help if you already have another solicitor or advice agency involved. We do not give second opinions on cases.
For appointments and referrals for members of the public please ring 0208478 4513 or email appointment@ramfel.org.uk

If you are a professional looking for help for an individual or family that you are working with then just download the referral form or use the online referral system.

We aim to respond to all enquiries for an appointment within 5 working days, if however the issue is urgent then please do also call the office and speak to a member of staff.
